Oldtwig – Seaside (Part 1)

Dope beats for sophisticated music lovers: Two years after the release of his outstanding Through Hills album, Oldtwig is back and presents the exquisite first part of his Seaside series. The rich, emotional sounds of a piano and a trombone lead the listeners through deep, slightly melancholic senarios with a very cinematic vibe. Great to…

Ulf Eriksson – Boiler Room Upfront 060

Deep, hypnotic Techno at its best: “DJing is so much more than just swapping records. It is – and should be – a reflection of the person that’s mixing. Right now I like to do mixes as shapes or waves. Sort of like small sculptures of sound. This is also how it turned out this…

Den Sorte Skole – Indians & Cowboys

Den Sorte Skole – Lektion III

One of the great musical discoveries I made at last weekend’s 3000° Festival: Den Sorte Skole are 2 Danish guys who use 4 turntables plus trigger pads to mix all sorts of rhythms and melodies from 50 years of music history and from more than 50 different countries. The result of this multi-dimensional sound collage…
